This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
the part is fairly easy to take apart, however pay close attention to how things fit and go together. It took me sometime to figure the reassembly out due to my lack of close attention to taking it apart. other than that it is simple.

Disassembled ice-maker, noting what screws went where, what direction ice release control arm pointed, and noting how the control arm spring was mounted. The door assembly comes off first followed by the circular assembly that houses the ice door and last grinding arms. It is quite easy see how it comes apart as you look at the screws. Remove the screw holding the back end of the control arm and note the spring position. The control arm needs to be turned to line up notches to pull it thru a faceplate hole while rotating the arm about the "U" that is on the outside of the faceplate in the door housing. There is a retaining clip holding the rotating impeller to remove to complete the dis-assembly. Use vinegar to clean rust out of bin and other parts around the faceplate. Assemble the unit in the reverse order to complete the job.
Went to You Tube and viewed the repair video. Took picture of assembly as I unassembled parts with cell phone. Used assembly drawing from this site as a reference. Eliminated the crushed ice function and removed blades from auger assembly.
I had no idea how to get the parts easily so i search on web , saw parts select.com,i read main folio of the site.which seems to me very reasonable.just one call and they delivered the part.nicely advised me if i need technical support to fix it but i was too confident and i did it.
removed the dispenser and disasembled it repaced plate and reasembled.
Replacing the plate requires taking apart the entire ice dispenser! It looks very difficult, but really is not very tough. The one good thing about it is that once it is all taken apart it is very easy to wash off the rust from the other parts.
It was just a matter of replacing the broken parts, and reassembling the ice machine. Nothing too difficult.
